Hello Families, 

Here are a few updates:
Hat Day will be on Friday 2-6-15 if students donate at least $1 to Pennies for Patients.  This is entirely optional.
I have a new U of M Practicum student helping out on Tuesday and Thursday mornings this semester.  His name is Briean Boddy.  He is also a U of M football player.  He has been helping out with math and also recess.  
Conferences are coming up on Thursday, Feb. 12 and Friday Feb. 13.  Many of you have sent in your request for a conference time.  I will send a note with your time in the Friday folder this week.  If you haven't signed up for a time yet, please email me. 
There will be no ALC classes the night of conferences, Thursday February 12.
I will be sending home a President's Day Take Home project on Friday.  Let me know if you have any questions.
Hello Families and Friends, 
Here are 2 updates that I forgot in my last newsletter.
- This Friday (tomorrow) we will be playing board and card games with our Big Buddies.  Students may bring a game from home if they would like.
Next Thursday, 2-12, we will be having a valentine card exchange in Room 205.  Students may bring cards to share with their classmates.  I will be sending home a class list in the Friday folder tomorrow.  Participation is optional.  I will also give students some time to make cards at school.  Please do not send candy with the cards.  It is against our school wellness policy.
Thanks for all that you do.  I am looking forward to seeing you at conferences!
